The Waywayseecappo Wolverines surrendered five unanswered goals in the second half of the game to go on and drop a tough 5-4 loss to the Winnipeg Blues on Tuesday night.

At 4:20 of the first period, Jaymes Knee was sprung on a shorthanded breakaway and beat Blues goaltender, Cooper Hatfield between the legs to give the Wolverines a 1-0 lead.

On a man-advantage just after the midway mark of the first, the Wolverines powerplay would go to work. A Conrad Phillips one-timer would beat Hatfield to give the Wolverines a 2-0 lead. Jaymes Knee and Brody Moffatt would pick up assists on the play.

Just prior to the end of the period, Conrad Phillips would jump on a loose puck in front of the net and poke it home for his second of the night to put the Wolverines up 3-0 heading into the break.

Rayman Bassi would notch his first point of the night while Jaymes Knee would get his second assist and third point of the night.

In the second period, Noah Westgate found a wide-open Kris Bladen in front and Bladen would make no mistake, tapping in the goal to increase the Wolverines lead to four.

The Blues would find an answer and score in tight on the powerplay to cut the Wolverines lead to 4-1 off the stick of Logan Danis.

Mikol Sartor would score on the powerplay with 2:02 to play and cut the Wolverines lead to 4-2 heading into the second intermission.

Just 5:23 into the third, Braden Fischer would sneak one past Tereposky to bring the Blues within one. Mitchell Joss would tie the game up at 4-4 ten minutes later and the Blues would continue to pour it on.

With 2:53 to play in the third, Logan Danis would score his second of the evening to give Winnipeg their first lead of the night at 5-4.

Tereposky would head to the bench for the extra attacker but that would be all as the Wolverines would fall 5-4 to the Winnipeg Blues.

Now 21-13-2-2 on the season, the Wolverines will have three days off between game action before they cap off the year in Dauphin against the Kings on Saturday night.
